Atlanta Hawks vs LA Lakers by QuidProQuo
The Hawks have 14-10 O/U record so far this season, and the Lakers are at 13-10 O/U. While the Hawks have been very good at playing defense at home, allowing 95.7 points per game (99.6 overall), I expect them to give up some points in this one. The Lakers play fast, 100.8 possessions per game on the road, and with no point guard, they don't have other option than playing fast...
The Lakers road defense is anything but good, and while trying to push up the pace they will be giving up a ton of points. The Lakers are allowing 106.5 points per game on the road including 88-85 win @ Bobcats and if it weren't that game that average would be closer to 110 points per game.
These teams played once this season in Los Angeles, and the Lakers won that game 105-103. The game tonight can easily end with even more points in my opinion. The over is 6-1 in Hawks last seven games, and 5-2 in Lakers last seven. Also, the over is 28-13 in Hawks last 41 games as a favorite of 5-10 points, and the over is 16-5 in Lakers last 21 as a road underdog of 5-10 points and 21-8 in Lakers last 29 as a road underdog...
